Johnson County Addresses Airport Issues

Johnson County Addresses Airport Issues

At their meeting Tuesday, the Johnson County Commissioners approved a lease agreement between themselves and Dale Jelly for the last available T-hangar at the county airport.

The lease agreement was for $265 per month, and will take effect May 1st.

Commission Administrative Director Jennifer Jackson said she has a waiting list for the T-hangars, and this one only became available because the previous lessee was vacating the hangar.

Also accepted by the commission was the resignation of Tom Newell from the Airport Board.

Newell submitted his official resignation letter, saying he was relocating to Texas and would not be able to serve on the board any longer. His resignation takes effect May 1st.

Commission Chair Smokey Wildeman suggested the commissioners draft a letter of appreciation to send to Newell.

The search for a new member for the board will now begin.
